Centifolia Candle

Centifolia Candle

Cultivated in the Grasse region of France since the 16th century, the Centifolia rose is also called the May rose for the month in which it is harvested. It comes by its Latin name (centum=one hundred + folio=leaf) because of its profusion of petals, said to number one hundred. This lush feature inspired the candle's container design and package illustration. To fully experience its scent, one must go into a field of roses at dawn in May, just before the harvest... The Centifolia candle may be lit alone or with the Damascena candle from the same collection.

Burn Time

The first time you burn your diptyque candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, until the whole top is liquid with wax. This will help your candle burn more evenly the next time.

  • Standard Candle: May burn up to 60 hours.
  • Mini Candle: May burn up to 30 hours.
  • Colored Candles: May burn up to 90 hours.
  • Large Indoor/Outdoor Candle: May burn up to 150 hours.

Realign the Wick

After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.

Trim the Wick

Before lighting your diptyque candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.

Safety

Never leave a lit candle unattended. This could be a fire risk. Always place your candle on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning. Do not place your candle on a marble or glass surface. If the bottom of the hot candle glass comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.
